SUBMUCOUS FIBROID PUSHING INTO CAVITY

If I have submucous fibroid (in top uterius muscle) and it is PUSHING INTO THE CAVITY, should I risk surgery and have it removed before IVF? What are other option? Can it be removed with less invasive method?

Thanks

Most IVF doctors recommend that you have a submucous fibroid removed before IVF because a submucous fibroid can disrupt embryo implantation and decrease your chances for IVF success as well as increase the changes of a miscarriage.
